Pint for Pint is Back! 

Eight local breweries are teaming up to encourage New Englanders to donate blood in August, a notoriously difficult time to ensure a steady blood supply.

During the month of August, all presenting donors at Rhode Island Blood Center’s six donor centers and select mobile blood drives who are 21 or older can choose to receive a coupon for a free pint of beer. A typical blood donation is one pint, which can help save up to three lives. Participating breweries include Whalers Brewing Company in South Kingstown, Grey Sail Brewing in Westerly, Linesider in East Greenwich, The Guild in Pawtucket, Proclamation Ale Company in Warwick, Apponaug Brewing Company in Warwick, Taproot Brewing Company in Middletown and Bravo Brewing Company in Pascoag.

2x Bonus is Back!

Donate twice between Father's Day, June 20, 2021 and Columbus Day, October 11, 2021 to earn a $10 e-gift card!

Double-red cell donors must donate once and book their next appointment.

Please donate BEFORE you go to... the beach, the cookout, on vacation.

If you have questions about your eligibility to donate, we encourage you to email our medical team at medicalstaff@ribc.org. They can also be reached by phone at 401-453-8383.
